INSPECTION - DISC BRAKE SHOES Visually inspect brake shoes (pads) for uneven lining wear. Also inspect for excessive lining deterioration. Check the clearance between the tips of the wear indicators on the shoes (if equipped) and the brake rotors.If a visual inspection does not adequately determine the condition of the lining, a physical check will be necessary. To check the amount of lining wear, remove the disc brake shoes from the calipers. Measure each brake shoe. The combined brake shoe and its lining material thickness should be measured at its thinnest point.
If the brake shoe assemblies do not require replacement, be sure to reinstall the brake shoes in the original position they were removed from.INSTALLATION - DISC BRAKE SHOES (FRONT) NOTE: Some vehicles use a different lining material on the front disc brake shoes than other vehicles. When new brake shoes are installed, be sure the brake shoes for the correct type of brake system are used.
